question. >> all right. a lot of questions about nancy pelosi and whether she will continue on as your leader. will she or won't she? >> you know, i think that's probably the hottest question in the capitol right now. but personally if you ask me, i would be shocked if she left. you know, would really surprise me if she stepped aside. nancy pelosi is someone who absolutely loves to be part of the architecture of big major decisions, the big issues. we wouldn't have health care reform without barack obama and nancy pelosi. and with the fiscal cliff issues and the big economic decisions we're going to be making it would be hard for me to imagine she walks away. plus, you know, we had a successful election and we've got a job to finish. so just knowing her, that's my gut feeling. >> did you guys have a successful election? because -- >> you mean in the house? >> yeah, obviously the president won big, the senate won big, but the republicans are still in charge of the house. >> yeah, they are. but, look, i think if you look at -- if this election were not right after redistricting, and if y
on this topic, they'll get plenty of help from our side. >> there's been talk about nancy pelosi and the speculation that she's going to step down as minority leader. have you heard anything about that and what are your thoughts about that? you're returning to work tomorrow. >> well, i got in trouble two years ago when i was asked that question because i really didn't at that time think that then speaker pelosi was going to want to be minority leader. if he wants to be minority leader, she will have that job as long as she wants it. she's been a tireless worker for the party. if she decides to step down, i think actually the leadership pieces will fall into place pretty quickly without contention in the democratic caucus and we'll have a very, very strong leadership contingent going forward in this congress. but right now, she hasn't laid her cards on the table. i assume we'll learn more later this week. >> i think that was a really good answer. i don't think you can get in trouble from that. you did a great job. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, thomas. >>> florid
mcconnell, house speaker john boehner and nancy pelosi. so, will we get a deal? one man getting a lot of attention is erskine bowles. did you ever think your name would be part of pop culture? you are the bowles in simpson bowles. >> better be simpson bowles than bowles simpson since everybody knows him by his initials here in washington. >> so, when you talk about things, sacred cows, untouchables, whatever the word might be, in your proposal, the one paul ryan decided not to back, the one barack obama decided not to back, you had an increase in the federal gasoline tax. caps on mortgage interest. charitable donations and retirement contributions. these were all top choices. you also increased the eligibility age for medicare and social security. reduced benefits for wealthier seniors. some of those things average democrats and republicans say they agree on, other, they loathe them. is there anything that should be untouchable? >> the problems are real, no easy way out. we've got to come up with at least $4 trillion of deficit reduction and that's not the maximum amount we need to do

don't, because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. >> david, do you buy that? democrats gain in both the house and the senate. the president won the popular vote, well over 300 electoral votes and by big majorities, they told exit pollsters they agree with the president's position on tax policy. >> well, whether the president has a mandate is a matter of opinion. whether he has power is a matter of fact. this president now has enormous power, because of the expiring of all these various tax measures and because of the advent of the sequester. he's in a situation where he's in a doomsday contest with the republicans, but the doomsday bites republican constituencies harder than those of democrats and of course, the president doesn't have to face re-election so even if doomsday arrives he has less to fear from it than the republicans do. so he's in a very powerful position. and republicans are going to have to be very savvy about how they play this. to go back to your original question, about why -- what was the cause of the defeat, we'

in session. nancy pelosi saying she would stay in her job as democratic leader as long as you stated in yours as the head of the democratic congressional campaign committee. now yesterday she was asked about the democratic leadership. but and i want to play some of what the exchange was and get your reaction to that. take a listen. >> some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long term. >> i think that what you will see, and let's for a moment honor it as a legislate question. although it's quite offensive, but you don't realize it, i guess. the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost decade now of leadership is to let younger and newer people to the congress. >> sir, in your estimation, did he have a point in pointing out all the players are staying the same, and is there a potential for new leadership blood to move things along in what many people would consider the gridlock that exists in washington, d.c. >> well, i love luke, but i think his question wasn't legislate. le
. first, what is the situation now? you've just briefed nancy pelosi. we've had word from her. where does it stand now, in terms of the rocket fire coming from garz and the return? >> good to be with you, andrea. well, just recently in the last hour and a half, rockets have struck tel aviv, terrorist rockets fired from gaza. >> did any of the rockets land in tel aviv? we were told by our correspondent they did not hit. what do you know about that? >> they landed in the tel aviv aarea. no injuries caused, thank god. this means 4.5 million israelis over half of the population of our country, is under rocket fire from gaza and israel's taking all means necessary to defend our citizens against the aggression. we've had 1,000 rockets fired at our citizens over the last month alone. israelis are in bomb shelters. prime minister netanyahu went to a bomb shelter in tel aviv to show his support. and our operations are continuing to persuade hamas and other terrorist organizations in gaza to cease firing rockets at our innocent civilians. >> is there a circumstance under which you would have ground
the numbers that nancy pelosi needs to become speaker again. and that's going to happen if the republicans keep thinking like mitt romney. >> you know, that's the question, ashley, and that is as you see the demographic changes, younger voters tend to be more liberal. a lot of hispanic people moving into the country having a lot of kids and voting and being citizens, becoming a part of a political process more than ever and you have african-american voters, an african-american president but there are other factors that have led hem to the democratic party potentially. you see a lot of potential for the democratic party to grow. then the other party says you're all bought, it seems to me that would just sort of fortify the democratic tendencies of the people we've been talking about here. >> well, it's unclear what wing of the republican party mitt romney, you know, is going to be representing going forward, and i think that's one of the reasons -- >> the mayor says he's out of business. i'm not sure he has a future. >> that's why it's easy for the republicans to come out and criticize him
